Two Lynnderellas from the Lovely is as Lovely Does collection
Hi! Long time no see again, but now I’ve finally started my summer vacation, so hopefully that leaves me with plenty of time to play with nail polish.
Today I have a couple of Lynnderellas from this winter’s “Lovely is as Lovely Does” collection. There’s been a lot of ruckus surrounding Lynnderella lately, and I don’t want to get into that whole can of worms, so let’s just talk about the polish, shall we?
First we have Sweets to the Sweet, described by Lynnderella as “translucent white multi-sized hexagons and squares, with scattered yellow, red, purple, turquoise, lime and emerald squares and hexagons in a shimmering translucent white sparkling base. There are also small iridescent green hexagons to sweeten the mix”. Unfortunately, it seems like some of the glitter in this polish is bleeding, causing the white base to turn a slight pinkish hue.
This is two coats of STTS over OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu.
The other one I have for you today is Boy-Girl Party, which is “a mixture of red, fuschia, pink, blue, turquoise and royal multi-sized hexagons, squares and diamonds in a transparent pink base”. There’s been reports of bleeding glitter with this one as well, but I can’t tell if my bottle has any fading glitters or not.
This is one coat of BGP over two coats of Revlon Desire.
Both of these were easy to apply, and the glitter is very dense and spreads easily and evenly over the nail. They are sheer, so you’ll need to layer them over a corresponding (or contrasting) base color.
Now, Lynnderellas are no longer available at Llarowe, instead Lynn will now be selling them herself through eBay. Unfortunately, that means no international shipping and a much higher price tag (they will now be $20 a bottle). Lynnderella has started updating her blog again, and there you’ll find information on where to buy, and also pictures of her new collection “Sweet Somethings for a Summer Solstice”.
What do you think of this whole situation? All I can say is that I keep my fingers crossed that Lynnderellas will be easily available for everyone again.
